I Carusi II is a hidden little St Kilda gem. Open since 2004, it has first provided some of the best Napolitan pizzas in Melbourne. It has grown over the years and is becoming the friendly unpretentious neighbourhood restaurant that is missing in St Kilda and the bayside. I Carusi II still offers its legendary pizzas but the menu now offers many other Italian favourites, with a function area for up to 25 people, home delivery and daily seasonal specials. Open 7 nights a week.

    Love this place. We started off downstairs, but it was too loud for our sensitive ears 🤣, so we were kindly loved upstairs. A classic St Kilda institution!
